As promised, Eminem unleashes his new single “The Monster” featuring Rihanna. This is the third time the duo have worked together, previously collaborating on the hit records “Love The Way You Lie” and “Numb.” The Monster will appear on Slim Shady‘s highly-anticipated The Marshall Mathers LP 2 album, set to drop November 5th. The single will be available on iTunes at midnight.
The Monster‘s co-writer Bebe Rexha recently opened up about helping pen the track which was originally meant for her debut album. Before the song was even finished, she stepped out of the recording booth and said “this is an Eminem record, y’all.” And after an interesting series of events, it turned into an Eminem and Rihanna record. More from the co-writer here.
Chorus written by Jon Bellion.
